Thai noodle salad. This is the final image. Below are the process shots.
This is one of the few shots that I hadn't figured out
before we started. Maggie liked this table I kept in my office so we
started there. I didn't have a good foreground surface until I realized I could take the table apart and use the top.
That worked so now my stand in for the dish, bubble wrap. I had about ten different plate options for this shot but ended up using this plate, which was the first plate I had foud.
Maggie went out for flowers and the bamboo leaves. It's starting to come together so now the food.
This feels close. A few adjustments, change the drink out, shallower depth of field and I'm there.
